    Before we get into the review of this book, let's do a bit of background into the Afterblight Chronicles which are a series of books, mostly written by different authors set in different places, with different characters, all of which takes place in a world where everyone who isn't blood group 'o' has died. Reading them in order, is both interesting for the different styles of the writers, but also somewhat pointless as for the most part they don't interact with each other, yet there are several [...]

    Scott Andrews has written another superb novel in the Afterblight Series. It has been a long time since I've been excited about an author's work. Mr. Andrews is a true wordsmith!

    In the Trilogy of School's Out Forever, Operation Motherland is part II (although, in the entire series, it is #6). Operation Motherland begins with Lee Keegan arriving in Basra Iraq in a small Piper airplane that he stole back in England and has managed to fly to Iraq - stopping for fuel along the way. Unfortunately, he is shot out of the sky by a ground force. He is captured and threatened with beheading. Fortunately, he says his name and tells his captors that he only wants to find his father [...]

    Grim and unleavened by the humor that lightened up the first book, Operation Motherland still reflects Scott K. Andrews' skill in weaving tense and never-boring post-apolyptic thrillers. Here the novelist offers a new conceit: alternating viewpoints. Jane, the matron Lee crushed on in Book One, provides counterpoint to the mayhem surrounding the series' main protagonist. The story begins with Lee's ill-fated efforts to pilot a plane. After a crash landing in Basra, Iraq, Lee attempts to rescue h [...]

    With so many different writers contributing to The Afterblight Chronicles you don't get a lot of recurring characters (if any) so it's nice to see Scott K. Andrews doing a straight sequel to the very enjoyable School's Out. The series doesn't aim for anything fancy, it's pulpy action movie thrills this is a pretty good instalment. Didn't blow my mind or linger after I put it down but given I read it in only a couple of sittings it must have been doing something right.

    I am surprising myself with the speed at which I am reading this series and just how much I am enjoying them. I had assumed they would be on the borderline of my tolerance to pulp, but they are just smart enough to keep me here and, perhaps even more importantly, highly character driven. So amidst all the shooting and head injuries and murder, I've found a reason to give a shit.

    As an American I have problems seeing us as the bad guys. Realizing this is a British author I understand the pov though. Action packed from beginning to end. Good read.

    This book suffers from disappointing "middle of the series" syndrome. That said it is still very much a worthwhile read.
